? >>> and huge protests didn't stop michigan's governor from signing the right to work law. what's this tell us about the future of labor? >>> but we begin with the latest on the fiscal cliff. republicans made another counteroffer but it's reportedly not much different from their first offer. though we don't have specifics, we do know the president and john boehner talked on the phone last night and that call, according to a republican familiar with it, was tense and lasted just 15 minutes. i want to bring in real clear politics reporter aaron mcpike and david hawkings, editor of the cq roll call daily briefing. good morning. so president obama sat down with barbara walters last night. here's what he said. >> most important thing we can do is make sure the middle class taxes do not go up on january 1st and i'm pretty confident that republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts for high income individuals. >> so he's confident. is it almost a foregone conclusion, do you think, david, that this is going to be the first piece of the puzzle that falls into place?
of the michigan coalition for responsible gun owners. mark, i will start with you. you heard from the nra a real focus not so much on guns, really talking about mental illness. they talked about tracking people who are mentally ill and pretty much everything, not about taking away guns but adding more guns. what did you make of their news conference today? >> you know, as somebody who's watched the organization for a while, my dad was a licensed gun dealer in colorado, i know a lot of nra members, it was a really surprising performance. the nra is usually quite smart. then again, they've never been under pressure like this. the truth is, it struck me as incoherent and bordering on detached from reality. talking about things lapierre gets paid a lot of money to talk about on a regular basis. it was not the time to say things even nra members don't believe. i think it is important as we have this debate that nra members are not the washington leadership. they're two very different things. nra members want commonsense gun laws. the washington leadership fights very hard against them. you're going t

flint, michigan, you have killed people. having seen first hand the effects of these corporate decisions, the outcry listen, drug abuse, the war suicides, all the social problems that go along with this act of violence, but we do not call it violence and no one has ever been arrested for it, i think it is a real shame. frankly, as an american, this is not how i want to be remembered. >> michael moore, the oscar- winning filmmaker who won the academy award for "bowling for columbine" after the massacre, speaking just hours after the massacre in connecticut. special thanks to filmmaker lorna tucker who is currently working on a documentary with the working title of "leonard peltier: an american prisoner." since friday's massacre in newtown, connecticut, that left 27 dead -- 20 children and six woman who tried to protect them" the national rifle association has been silent the powerful lobbying organization has refused to give interviews on monday, more than 150 gun control advocates marched on the nra's capital hill headquarters. among the more people directly impacted by gun violence. >>
this morning is focusing on the bitter fight ahead on the issue of gun control. we go to erie, michigan, republican line. caller: good morning. i have a couple of grandson's about the age of the children that were killed. i think the politicians are wasting their time. anybody can fabricate a high- capacity magazine. all they would have to do is take the model of the war on drugs. that would cure all our problems. host: me get back to "the new york daily news" -- their tiny caskets not only told of innocence lost the compound of the pain of the month of a crime that has shaken the foundations of a country. one of the priest said it is a horrible tragedy and makes no sense to us. they are saying if you have not been angry, get angry. that these 20 children cannot change these -- this world, no one will. that is this morning from "the new york post." -- "a new york daily news." let's go back to the testimony of 1993. we heard from one of the husband of the victims and senator joe biden was chairing that committee. here is what senator biden said 19 years ago. [video clip] >> one of the th
in the dark. a light dusting of snow also fell overnight adding to the cold conditions. >>> in michigan a winter storm caused havoc on the roads, crashes were reported all effort detroit area including several that involved police cars. more than 19 inches of snow fell in some parts of michigan thursday and friday knocking out power to at least 142,000 homes and businesses. >> in wisconsin, green bay packer fans grabbed shovels to help clean up the field after a major snowstorm there. more than a foot of snow needed to be cleared. for years they have asked fans to come help shovel during massive blizzards. yesterday some lined up for more than four hours before the project was scheduled to start. those who did get a shovel got paid ten dollars an hour. >> without these people helping we couldn't dot. we have 650 people right now. we have 13 people on our staff just supervisorring it. we are moving a lot of snow. we couldn't do it without the public. >> and because of the fan effort the field is ready to go for tomorrow's game when the packers host the titans. >> hopefully they get t
michigan that you saw sent cnn a video he made where he cuts up his nra card. don? >> listen, about putting armed guards in school. that has been proposed before. so it's nothing new. and it's good at least they tried to do something. but they took no personal responsibility. and no intro aspects at all. it was disgusting to most americans. is there any evidence at all that putting armed guards in school will protect children? >> i mean, there just doesn't seem to be any evidence of it. certainly senator bloumenthal doesn't think so and we didn't get a chance to ask questions of the nra, because they didn't take questions from reporters. plenty of parents would not be comfortable with certainly having more guns in schools. for example, in the shooting at columbine high in 1999, don, you'll remember, there was an armed guard at the school, and 13 people died. now, still, there are plenty of gun rights supporters who think the nra's proposal will make schools safer and that gun control is not the answer. >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. >>> lots more on gun control. at 10:00, i'll tal

wisconsin is really starting to take the brunt of this and beginning to snow hard now in northern michigan. we'll pick up an additional six to ten inches in northern michigan and wisconsin. but it's the winds that are making it very difficult for the plows to keep up with. we have winds gusting from wichita to des moines, above 40 miles per hour this morning. so travel in the midwest, very dangerous. and i'll continue to give you any updates here on "morning joe." when i hear more information of the mobile area in alabama, possibly struck by a tornado within the last half hour. you're watching "morning joe." we're brewed by starbucks. this family used capital one venture miles to come home for the holidays. that's double miles you can actually use... sadly, their brother's white christmas just got "blacked out."

. host: ? writes -- josh rogin writes -- brian is with us from michigan. republican line. caller: good morning. one of the questions i have had since the beginning is where was the president and secretary of state? did they see this going down in real time? i have not heard that question asked. i hope you can answer both questions. why did these recent three or four leave the state department? what did they do wrong to leave? will they be subpoenaed, will they be asked to come and testify? guest: as for real-time surveillance, what we know now is that there was some surveillance of the attack. apparently there was an unarmed drone that was quickly deploy that captured some of the attack. we also learned that there was testimony that the deputy assistant secretary who was in charge of the embassy security was monitoring these events in real time along with a couple of other people. we are not sure whether the cia and defense department were monitoring, but it is possible they were. president obama had a full schedule. he was in the middle of the campaign that day. he was being briefed b
